Plant Part: Bark
Processing Method: Steam Distillation
Color/Consistency: Birch sweet oil is a transparent yellow color with a thin consistency.
Product Description: Birch is a species of a deciduous tree, native and abundant throughout northern Europe and northern Asia. The tree is a pioneer species, readily colonizing cleared land, but later being replaced by taller, more long-lived species. It has bright green leaves and a dark reddish-brown aromatic bark, which is broken into plates or patches.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with the eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
Note: Natural Blends are blends of oils from various natural sources to achieve an economical product that resembles the fragrance of the pure essential oil.
